Three men sentenced following 2014 post office robbery in Manorcunningham


Three men have been jailed for six years each for their part in the robbery of a sum of money from Manorcunningham Post Office in October of last year.

The men, all from Derry, had earlier hijacked a Royal Mail van in the city before crossing the border into Donegal and carrying out the robbery.

However, gardai were alerted while they were driving back towards the border, and the men were caught and arrested.

They appeared at Letterkenny Circuit Court yesterday.

Lauren Harte of the Derry News was in court, and earlier, she spoke about the hearing on the Shaun Doherty Show.........
